Bio and Links
Bio Photo Since joining the volunteers of FINDAGRAVE.COM years ago, I've tried to share collected information from visiting various cemeteries in IL, WIS, CA and roads along the ways.

My Sister, Susan nee Seidelman Feltes has joined me in my excursions to photograph stones in various cemeteries. We also make photo books for the local public library in Osseo, Wisconsin. So far we've donated over 30 books.

If you're related to any of my listings, request transfer...Glad to share links with family members and glad someone found family members.

This is a wonderful site and glad to be part of it and hopefully you'll become a member and share information with others.

When a loved one dies ... they don't die if someone takes the time to share the information with the world, and has become a world-wide web site.

If you are interested in the SEIDELMANN/SEIDELMAN family I have published a 181 page, Hardbound, fully indexed book 2003. Contact me if you would like further information.

PS...even if someone I've listed is a link in your family -- and not a direct link of mine, I'm more than happy to put my memorials in the management of a family member or friend who can add more information to the memorial.

I also do photo restores and composites for FREE for FINDAGRAVE.COM members.

Note: I've transfered about 8,931 memorials as of this date. If I'm not related, I'd rather transfer to someone doing research or adding information.

Re: Transfer of Kneller Memorials
Hello Jim
Many thanks for the transfer of the Kneller Find A Grave pages to my care. It was very considerate of you and will allow me to add further details as I discover them.

I had not previously noted that you have been with Find A Grave for 14 years. I think it's commendable that you retain the generous and sharing spirit first envisaged by those who conceived of the original Find A Grave site.

Best wishes and regards of the Season
and Happy Graving in 2015

Another Thank You!

I just wanted to tell you that the picture you made of my father-in-law, Milton L. Kanitz, was used as the final photo on the picture DVD I made for the memorial service, and also on the front of the thank you cards.

The photo is getting a lot of mileage, and I thank you so much!

RE: duplicate memorial
Thank you James. I think just deleting it is the easiest way to take care of it, since it would involve transferring several family links if I tranferred my duplicate to you. I did steal the obit you posted on your memorial, I didn't have one...hope you don't mind. Let me know if that is a problem. Thank you again for helping me out with this, much appreciated. I'm from Downers Grove, IL originally, now in Hawaii. Guess we both headed for warmer digs. Apparently we're a couple of wimps who couldn't survive the winters anymore, LOL!

duplicate memorial
Hi James. I believe we have a duplicate memorial for Marjorie G. Mau. Yours #5061430 and mine #46780172. I inherited the memorial from another contributor who posted it in 2010. She apparently didn't see your 2000 posting. Marjorie is a relative of mine & I would like to have her if that's okay with you. I have her maiden name, links to her family, birthdate, headstone photo & cemetery location. If that's agreeable to you, would you mind transfering her so I can merge the memorials or if its easier just delete it as I have the info that's on your memorial. Thank you!

Hi James,
Thanks so much for the transfer and your attitude towards transfers. You're a breath of fresh air and not one of those awful, mean, and nasty Find A Grave hoarders. I like your style! I'm going through the Payot family, which is connected to me, and can now add bio info at will.
Thanks again,

Edit for Evelyn Duha
I have a question about the edit you sent me for Evelyn Duha indicating her maiden name is "Eulgem."

Her obit states that she was born to John and Clara (Eulgem) Duha. And, according to the obit, her mother's maiden name was Eulgem. It says nothing about her ever having had been married, thus no maiden name.

Having said that, obits don't always share ones entire life, only what the obit creator wants included. Am I missing something?

Thanks in advance, Kathy

Jean-Thomas Couture
You posted the obit for my son, Jean-Thomas born 1994 died 2000 here and I thank you. There is at least one other post maybe two for him on this site. You mark in your post burial place unknown. I thought you might like to know where it is and if you are ever by you can stop by and visit him. He would like that. He always enjoys a visit from a friend. If you can please place a gift on his stone of a special pinecone, small stone or a sea shell as these are things he likes to collect.
Jean-Thomas is buried at Millburn Cemetary across from Millburn Elementary School in Millburn, Lake County, Illinois.
